We are on similar paths but I stopped taking the trazadone first before attempting the lexapro. I have just started the process for lexapro so any advice would be appreciated! I had been on each for about 6 years.
As for the trazadone, I started by taking half my dosage each night for 2 weeks to see how I felt. After that I stopped completely and took magnesium citrate and zinc before bed. It has worked great and helps calm nerves before bed. I sleep through the night and am happy I do not rely on the trazadone anymore.
